Cut and Chip Tester

Physical Property Testing


The Cut and Chip Tester is designed to measure the relative service life of off-the-road, farm and heavy duty treads that are subjected to the rigors of traveling on rocky surfaces. This instrument also measures the chipping and tearing of the tread when subjected to off-the-road surfaces by reduction in sample weight due to chips.
